How are you feeling?

Is 2012 treating you well?

Or are you feeling a bit like Mysty and me?


We would just kinda like to throw our arm over our eyes and bury our heads in the blankets and stay there for a while.

December brought us Mysty’s 20th birthday and a few new health problems to go along with old age.

And then . . .

A good friend of mine ran into some HUGE issues in December and we’ve been trying to make sense of these and work through them with her.  Non-health related but very life changing for her and her family, and just about everyone around her!  Sometimes it’s that slap upside the head that makes you look at everything just a bit differently around you.  But . . . life still trudges on whether you accept it or not.


The quilt mo-jo almost left the house as well . . . although I did dredge up a little ambition to pull out some leftover bright colored prints to make a little baby quilt.


It did kinda make me feel better for a while.  Then I made another one and another one – maybe the mo-jo is back?!?!?!

I received an email this morning from a very talented quilter in California.   Barbara from the Pointless Quilter made this quilt from my recipe on The Moda Bakeshop – she even made it bigger with more borders added . . . amazing!  I love how this email showed up at the same time as I was using the leftovers of the same fabric – this made my day.  Thank you Barbara!

How is your January so far?

2012 is gearing up to be interesting if nothing else!  Have a great week everyone . . .
